    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although I did not much care for the material, the professor was excellent and made it very easy to understand the material. He also made it very easy to do well in the class. Optional extra credit was given at the end of the term which helped boost a lot of people's grades. All the tests were open note and open book, making it easy to get a good grade as long as you took good notes.

    Course highlights:

    In this course we learned about how heat is moved from one surface to another; how it moves within a pocket of air; how it is transferred from one location to another, and other similar modes of heat transfer. Conduction was the main focus for this course, with a short section on both Convection and Radiation.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely take it with DiGiuseppe! He is an awesome professor and provides you with all the notes you need in class and for the tests. Always show up for class because he takes attendance which counts toward your final grade. Stay off your phone and computer because he will take off points in your final grade if you are using them often.
